The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB on Tuesday announced the cut-off marks for the 2017/2018 academic calendar year for the admission of students into the higher institutions.

The Board in conjunction with Vice-Chancellors of Universities, Rectors, and Provosts of Polytechnics and Colleges of Education were at the Admission Meeting of JAMB where the cut-off marks were agreed. JAMB, however, stated that the cut-off marks only serve as the minimum marks to be considered in admitting students into the various higher institutions in the country.

But we should not be deceiving ourselves on the stand of the JAMB that the institutions can decide their most preferred cut-off separately. There is no doubt that all Private Universities in Nigeria will adopt the minimum cut-off marks of 120 for University admissions while it is would be rare to see any Polytechnics or Colleges of Education choosing anything above 100 cut-off marks as leveled by the JAMB.

Our question is:

With 120 as cut-off marks for University admission and 100 as cut-off marks for Polytechnics and Colleges of Education. Are we making progress educationally?
